Celebrate the holidays at The Second City with our festive new holiday movie parody that scorches the clichés, tropes, and so-bad-they’re-good romances that have kept cable networks in business and former child stars employed.
On the cusp of becoming a partner in a Fortune 500 company and her big-city boyfriend proposing, Holly Sweetberry’s plans are upended when she must deliver a message to the mayor of her long-left-behind hometown. Will songs be sung? Will a winter festival be thrown? Will the cookie-cutter characters be missing any semblance of a backstory? Find out in this holly, jolly, hilarious original new show created to tickle your mistletoes!
